the budget. he did cut 15% of spending in aid to cities and towns. he did cut 4% of the budget for local schools. congratulations, you cut local education. winner! but here's what he doesn't tell you, so all those local cities and towns had to make up the money somehow. what do they do? they raise property taxes. on average they went up 24% under romney's just his four year reign. why? they had to get the money from somewhere. that's $700 a year out of the packet of all the people in massachusetts that owned a home. he doesn't tell you about that, does he? >> how about that famed bipartisanship he brags about? do you know how many times he issued vetoes? 844 vetoes. jesus! what happened to bipartisan ship? >> when you ask the president of the senate at the time, well, here's what he says about that. >> he truly didn't have an understanding of how valuable the political personal component of the business would be as he went forward with implementing the political rhetoric into political policy. >> and then even senior advisor to mitt romney himself said this. >> the governor came in as an

into fact local and state taxes you know what the top 5% pay? they get 35.3% of the income, as you can say in 2011 and they pay 37.1% of the taxes. so that is not a very progressive tax system at all. and so why is romney saying they pay 60% of the taxes when in reality when you take all the taxes in effect they pay pretty much the percentage that they get, 35% to 37%. because romney thinks it's his job to protect the top 5%. no don't raise the taxes. they already pay too much--of federal income. his job will be to look out for the top 5% who made him president and who earlier made him governor. that's what they have to connect and understand that this guy is not going to create any jobs. he didn't do it in massachusetts, and's not going to do it as president. that's not his goal. you have 18 days to do it. i hope the obama administration is listening. this is an issue that used issue for mitt romney. swing state likely female voters 49% for president obama and 48% for mitt romney. that used to be a much larger differential but it's obviously closed. why? he says, i got a binder full of

. >> it required stitches, i know he was treated here by the local ems 12347 the police charged jennings with assault, theft and hate crime because he told the middle eastern cabbie to go back to his own country. >> cenk: that's an exact quote. according to the cabbie he said, i'm going to kill you. you should go back to your country. forget the hate crime part of it although you shouldn't forget that, but he said, i'm going to kill you and then stabs the guy. the cabbie said he tried to stab him in the neck and he blocked it with his hand. no one disputes that he pulled a knife. but the cops wouldn't do anything to him because he pays $10,000 in taxes. you want to talk about a sense of entitlement. i'm rich, and i've a $3.5 million house, i can stab you all i like. you know what they did today? dropped the charges. local report. >> in queens a cabbie anger and frustrateed. >> it's unfair. i swear to god, it's really unfair. >> in stamford a banker thankful and relieved. >> i don't have a lot to say about the case beyond the fact that the outcome speaks for itself. >> connecticut prosec

the state and local governments have spent 25%. that's a disaster aid formula that has been around for a long time. there is another ratio where the federal government spends 90% and the state only spends 10%. how in the world are they going to rebuild that after the federal government. it all works together. it doesn't mean that you only need federal government and you don't neat local contractors or governors or mayors, of course not. that's a ridiculous and extreme comments that only republicans would make. speaking of ex-treatment comments, do you remember mitt romney said he didn't believe there should an federal fema? unbelievable. he was asked about that from reporters. let's get the response. >> what is your response about fema? >> cenk: he was asked 14 times that day and i never answered the question. that's pretty telling right there in and of itself. now, when we come back we've got one of the top climate scientists in the world with us, james hansen. they warned us, they warned that storms like this would happen. they didn't listen. by the way, the republicans are also

getting obama in the office. the system of electing local and state and federal officials is appalling. it's set up to continue extraordinary levels of disenfranchisement, and i think hopefully the increased attention will translate. but again we need color of change and many other organizations, this show and others on tv to bring this to the foreground. we need a three party system and all kinds of challenges to inintimidation to democracy. >> rashard listening to what tricia is saying has clear channel responded? has there been any movement on this? are people outraged. >> there are people who are outraged locally and nationally. they have offered up a billboard to put up their own message but that's not enough. this is not a two-sided conversation. we're not having a two-sided conversation about people's ability to go to the polls and access the polls without intimidation or this culture of fear. what we hope is every day american, people who are watching your show will go to color of change.org , sign the petition, text, sign to 225568. that's sign 225568. join this campaign. the more
